A slurry seal is a mixture of asphalt emulsion, aggregate, water, and mineral filler. Slurry seals are used to seal and protect worn, weathered, and cracked pavement from the effects of further weather and traffic. Another use is to improve friction properties. A special form of slurry seal has been used in high-traffic areas up to and including interstate highways. Microsurfacing is a heavy-duty slurry seal and includes the use of a polymer-modified asphalt binder. This product has been used to fill ruts on high-volume roadways. In traffic areas, use microsurfacing or slurry seals a maximum of two times between overlays and consider on five- to seven-year cycles.

The use of surface treatments does not negate the need for routine crack sealing. Crack sealing is an additional maintenance procedure required to extend the life of asphalt concrete pavements. Using a slurry seal or microsurfacing results in smaller cracks being sealed but larger cracks will continue to need sealing.
